Saaty Photography: Tips for Writing Vows
Tips for Writing Vows: Saaty Photography. Writing vows is an incredibly special opportunity to say all of the things you’ve ever wanted your partner to know. No matter how much we try to express our love, there are some deep, beautiful things that remain unsaid. Writing vows is a chance to say all of those things and more. Trying to capture our deepest feelings in written words can be vulnerable and a challenge, so here are tips for writing your vows.
Tips for Writing Vows: Contemplate
Writing vows begins with honest reflection upon your relationship from a selfless place. Really take the time to think about how much your partner fulfills your life and brings joy and happiness into your world. Think of how far you’ve come in your relationship. Contemplate how much your love has helped you both grow and evolve into the best people you can be. Reflect on where you’ve been together and where you hope to go in the future. What do you love and cherish about them? Maybe there is something you don’t say enough that you think your partner deserves to hear.
Jot down thoughts with no expectations regarding how it all sounds. Feely write, hold nothing back, and don’t expect the first time these words come out to be eloquent. This allows you to write and contemplate with no judgment. With freethinking comes the deepest thoughts. From there, begin to pick the positive, love-filled ideas and thoughts that you want your partner to know, and then continue to edit and refine them from there.
Tips for Writing Vows: Turn Inward
Finding the words for true love comes with time and thought. Sometimes, writers block can send us down the rabbit hole of the internet and it can be appealing to read examples of the beautiful vows others have written. Though this may be tempting, it can be counterproductive, because suddenly, other people’s words are in your mind along with the idea that there is a right or wrong way to write vows. It can be easy to gather inspiration in this way, but once all is said and done, those thoughts aren’t straight from you and your heart. Your vows will be far more meaningful and will stand the test of time if instead you look for inspiration within your own relationship.
When you’re stuck, try to brainstorm in different ways. Look at photos and write your memory of that day and how you felt about being with them. Go through a memory box or scrapbook of concert tickets and plane tickets. Read parts of your personal journal or diary. Listen to music that reminds you of your love. Through little techniques like this, you can escape the clutches of writer’s block while keeping your vows uniquely and personal.
